Black Doily for the Dragon

When we were in the Czech Republic we went to Český Krumlov almost every day. To have breakfast, to get groceries, to have diner, to do some shopping. As an old medieval town, the most prominent marker of the town is the castle, which has five courts. In one of the courts was a little market every day and that was where we found this awesome hand made oil lamp, formed as a dragon. 



The wick sits in its nose, so when you lit it, it looks as if the dragon is spitting fire. So great! 




The lamp sits on the table in our living room and the dragon doesn't only spit fire, but also soot and to protect the table from gathering black spots all the time I made a black doily for underneath the dragon, so the soot spots aren't visible. I found the pattern at Le Blog de Anne.
